obama out there for the problems in washington. >> i'm willing to do whatever it takes to get congress and republicans in congress in particular it, to think less about politics and party and think more about what's good for the country. i have made this argument to my republican friends privately. and by the way sometimes they say to me privately i agree with you. but i'm worried about a primary from somebody in the tea party back in my district. >> with us now to react, cathy aru. the founder of catalina magazine and contributing editor to the "the washington post." so after five years, don't you think the blame game is getting a little old? >> well, actually, it's not a blame game. it it's a branding game. and he is branding the republican party, what they really are right now is almost the tea party. the rush limbaugh party. the fringe party. the no party. so it's not really a blame game. it's real little a branding game. and it's true. >> you think it's working? because can i tell you i was there for three years. >> right. >> scott: i know the president. obviously i have met the p
in washington to honor dr. king's crusade. but sadly, sadly, most of the speeches were heavy on grievance, light on problem-involving. we heard a small but a criticism directed at irresponsible behavior that leads to chaos and ruin but not much. however, we did hear a lot about racial profiling. and voter identification requirements. we heard questionable comparisons of trayvon martin to immitt til. we heard the continuing mantra of more government money to fix social problems that can only be fixed in the home. intelligent americans know it is the collapse of the traditional family that is wreaking havoc in the african-american community. other issues while some somewhat important are essentially a side show. if dr. king were alive today he would be broken hearted what has happened to the traditional family and not only among blacks, in our competitive society the ill educated of all colors are likely to fail. good education is a partnership between parents and teacher fns if they are derelict read and study at home teachers cannot wave a magic wand. if a child has no guidance in the house. he

's bring in former state department spokesman p.j. crowley and michael crowley and washington post diplomatic correspondent ann biernan. thank you all for being here. p.j., i want to start with you and this announcement by president obama that washington is canceling the joint military operations. how significant is that decision? does it carry any weight whatsoever? >> i'm sure it will be heard loud and clear by the egyptian military. how they respond to that, we'll have to see. i think the administration's challenge right now is not only what message it sends to the egyptian military, of course the president again decided not to tinker with the existing military assistance, but also what message do you send to the muslim brotherhood. do they have a mounting list of grievances. of course, the policy objective is to return to inclusive democracy. the real challenge over the next several weeks is how do you entice the muslim brotherhood that's been the victim of a coup and violence back into the political process. the end result is stronger than what was overthrown six months ago. >
